White House | Champions of Change Fatherhood Initiative

While in the White House, President Obama joined with fathers around the country through the President’s Fatherhood and Mentoring Initiative to send a strong message about personal responsibility while supporting dads who want to be there for their kids. This Initiative included support for local fatherhood programs, town halls around the nation, partnerships with outside organizations. The Champions of Change Award recognizes the importance of good fathers as role models in young children’s lives and have dedicated themselves to mentoring and supporting fathers across the country.

Carlos Duran is the recipient of the Champion of Change Award for his work through Hombres De Palabra and community engagement regarding fatherhood.
